Storyline

In this sequel to Father of the Bride (1950), Stanley Banks learns that his daughter Kay is going to have a baby. When they get the news everyone except Stanley is overjoyed. His wife and grandmother-to-be Ellie broadcasts it everywhere and all Stan can do is worry about the practical things like how his son-in-law Buckley can afford it. Well, having not long ago paid for the wedding, Stanley has no intention of bearing any of the expenses involved. Buckley's parents and Ellie are overjoyed at the news and virtually take over redecorating the young couple's new house. Crisis and false alarms take over their lives and when the child is born, the only person he doesn't seem to like is Stanley. A walk in the park - and absolute panic when Stanley misplaces his grandson - seems to resolve the situation. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

This is one of a handful of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer productions of the 1950-1951 period whose original copyrights were never renewed and are now apparently in Public Domain; for this reason this title is now offered, often in very inferior copies, at bargain prices, by numerous VHS and DVD distributors who do not normally handle copyrighted or Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer material.

Goofs

During the drive to the hospital, Stanley and Ellie cross a railroad track just before the arrival of a train. Immediately afterward, we can see the traffic behind the car, and the stream of cars is undisrupted, with no sign of the train. See more »

Quotes

Stanley Banks: [after someone called him 'Grampa' at the announcement event] Somewhere there was a fly in the ointment... Grampa, that was the fly. Grampa.

a wonderful film
19 June 2002 | by (Motala, sweden) – See all my reviews

I like this movie. It's a cute one with a wonderful story, Spencer Tracy is great as the grandfather and the mother [can't remember her name] is wonderful as the worrying mother! I haven't seen the first one but I sure like this! It just makes me happy.
